good morning!

Sorry to hear of your ordeal.  Laser resurfacing is a procedure that many less experienced physicians take for granted without understanding the problems they can generate without adequate care and expertise.  Without an exam and/or photos it is difficult to make any recommendations.  I would go see an experienced provider in your area that does a lot of laser resurfacing- ask to see before and after photos of their actual patients to see how expedienced they really are.

I hope this helps

Clinical pictures before and after the procedure will be very helpful. Also medical record from the procedure is mast.
Throw clinical exam will also be needed before we ca know how to help you.
